"After climbing Carrie it was heating up. I scrambled back across the Catwalk and found a real easy and direct route to the top. Went down a real loose chute towards the trail to save time and I was running low on water. Apparently Sean went up this way which must have been the worst. Made it back to camp exausted and thirsty to find Sean packed and ready to go. I decided to nap but maybe got 30 minutes before the 15 goats showed up and surrounded my tent. They wouldn't scare off so I decided to pack up and hike the 10 miles out. Long, hot, sweaty, and buggy hike out but the trip was great. " - Cat Peak, MatthewWinterberg, Jul 30, 2018
"Report from WTA from the boys: We got to the Lena Lake parking area at around noon Saturday, and it was completely full - we had to park quite a ways down the road. Please note that this trailhead requires a Northwest Forest Pass since it's federal land, NOT a Discover Pass. We saw many cars getting ticketed for the wrong pass. We left at 12:30 in overcast weather, but that was nice for carrying heavy packs. The trail to Lena Lake is well maintained, fairly flat, and easy to follow. It was a nice leisurely way to start our adventure. Lots of people out, and at the lake there were tons" - The Brothers, BryHong8, May 27, 2018

"This was an amazing trip with OSAT grads! Dan McCambridge slipped and fell at one of the waterfalls and had to bow out from leading the group to the summit. Nik and Ray stepped up as leaders and it was a bluebird day!!" - The Brothers, chrisfiamengo, Sep 27, 2015
"Almost everything went according to plan as I finally got out to explore this classic. We left the TH at 5 pm and made it up through the Valley of the Silent Men in dense fog and dimming light to the Brothers basecamp by 8pm. Next morning we got a late 8am start for the summit. A lot of sections to this climb: first the forest, then the fire section, then the rockpile/streambed section, then finally the snow (with a long hike portion after the first gully). The Hourglass was still in great shape, and snow ramped all the way to a little below the summit. Crampons required. Descending things a" - The Brothers, scott, Jun 11, 2014
